Catholic Education Foundation

The Catholic Education Foundation, CEF, is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization established in 1968 to provide tuition assistance for qualified students wishing to attend an Evansville Catholic High School. In the current school year, CEF provided support to over 45% of students attending Memorial or Mater Dei, who may not otherwise have the opportunity.

By contributing to CEF you ensure all students, regardless of socioeconomic background, can attend a Catholic high school. A donation of any size makes a positive difference in the lives of young men and women who will be blessed by the lifelong benefit of an outstanding Catholic high school education.


"Quality Catholic Education is as essential today, to be sure, as it was in 1925 and 1950, because only the Catholic School can provide for the total development of the individual -body, mind, soul and spirit. When you educate half a child, who is shortchanged? It is important to learn how to make a Good Life. It is important not just to the child, but to you, to God and to Society. The choice is one that can make a lifetime of difference!". -CEF Archives
